KINGSPORT – Engage Kingsport Performing Arts Series‚ presents an evening with Woody Pines on Saturday August 9, 2014 at 8 pm at The Renaissance Arts Center Theatre.
Crackerjack musicianship goes a long way toward a bands greatness, but showmanship seals the deal. Pines, on stage, is an old soul and natural performer, storied and steeped in the best of American music. Live, the group infuses a hundred years of American music into their performance ‚¬ everything from early 20th century acoustic blues and Rock-a-billy, to the sounds of the White Stripes and The Black Keys. Theyll even drop some hip-hop vibes in the mix. Its a fast-paced, swinging, high-energy show. Its kind of an alter ego, both a band and a person.
The Band includes Zack Pozebanchuck on Upright Bass, Lyon Graulty on Clarinet, Lead Guitar and Vocal Harmonies, Mike Gray on Drums, and Woody on Guitar, Harmonica and Vocals. They create a Rock-a-billy, Halloween hootenanny that could have come straight out of a time traveling
vaudeville show. Their song Counting Alligators puts listeners straight into the backseat of a convertible with Doctor John and Professor Longhair, whipping around the back roads of the Delta on a crisp, autumn night. Several other songs by the band, such as Nashville and Delta Bound, evoke thoughts of a Southern gossip or a post-Civil War America where the blues werent just a style of music, but a way of life. We pick and choose the best sounding music in the world, says Pines, and sing our own words and put our hearts and souls into that backdrop, thus creating a truly unique, and infectious style, never heard before‚¬¦
Woody sounds like Willie Nelson singing a‚ Johnny Cash song in a 1930‚¬²s Alabama Juke Joint. Wildly addicting, one magical album.
Music with enough soul to satisfy Satan himself‚¬¦.. Its American Roots mixed with folk and the new wave Southern Gothic.‚ In other words, AWESOME!

Woody Pines is the best band I ever heard in my life I swear‚¬¦. Im their biggest fan now!
~Billy Joe Shaver
Rock solid sexy old time vaudeville hill-billy groove.
~Sxip Shirey of the Luminescent Orchestrii, NYC
A rollicking, engaging amalgam of old-time blues and jug band sensibilities. ‚¬¦.Walking Down the Road has overtones of early Dylan in its guitar finger-picking and wistful drawl.
